“Pass Time” – Living with Alzheimer’s

Alzheimers can be a tragic, aggravating, patience-destroying disease. My Gran had Alzheimers. She was an amazing woman. It was during one of my last conversations with her that I realised it could be a shocking, nostalgic and surprisingly joyous affliction! Once you remember (we often forget) that elderly people have MUCH more experience at life than “wise-old-you”, their reality, whatever it may be, can be an amazing ride. Cherish them and embrace it.
